Fine Art Estate Auction Services

Artwork is everywhere. But what is worth money and what isn’t? You might have a good sense of a piece of art’s value when you were the one who bought it, or you know who created it – but when you’re seeing it for the first time in someone else’s collection, all bets are off. When that happens, Burns Auction & Appraisal is here to help.

But is it (Valuable) Art?

Many pieces of art are purely decorative. That means they don’t have a great deal of value. In other words, they can be sold, possibly even for a respectable price, but you’re not going to retire on the money you make from it. Still, though, some pieces of art are worth a great deal of money, and it’s not unthinkable that the art you found in an estate is one of those.
